A young 10 year old girl gave birth to a 31 week premature baby in Mexico via C-section at the Women’s Hospital in the city of Puebla. She is recovering from pneumonia and is expected to do okay.
The Puebla state Attorney General’s Office is now investigating whether the girl could have been raped and who the father is, the hospital’s director Rogelio Gonzalez said, according to UpFrontNewswire.
This is not the first case of a shockingly young girl giving birth in Mexico.
This is the second reported case of a young girl giving birth in Mexico. Last August, an 11-year old who had been repeatedly raped by her stepfather got pregnant at 10 but delivered at 11.
